Chiang Mai

 
 

700 km (440 miles) north of Bangkok is Chiang Mai, Thailand's second largest city and the heart of the Northern Region. Chiang Mai is a modern and developing city but unlike Bangkok, manages to retain a relaxed atmosphere. Besides the historical sites and other attractions, Chiang Mai is a convenient starting point for trekking into the jungles and hill tribe villages in the region. More at Guide to Chiang Mai.
